Last week, I decided that to boost the number of likes on my Facebook page I’d hold a give away. I’m really pleased with the results. I’m not quite at my target of 200 likes but very close. I also discovered that you could change the name of a page; I did this and Mark’s Crochet page became Guy Who Crochets page. 🙂 Streamlining my brand.
I made this hedgehog during the Summer. I particularly proud of this amigurumi as I completely designed it myself. The spikes were an adaptation of the surface crochet I’d used on the TOFT sheep I’d crocheted.
If you use facebook feel free to drop by and like my page. I’ll pick a follower randomly once I hit 200 likes and get her/him posted off to their new home.
The weekend before last, I went to a hobby and crafts show in Birmingham. I came back with plenty of yarn and best of all my 2.4 cm Tunisian crochet hook.
It wasn’t long before I put it to work making a nice, chunky scarf. I split open a bag of Patons “Colour Works Aran” and removed four balls.
Using the Tunisian simple stitch, I worked the four balls into a thick fabric weight chains wide (though I could/should have used ten, I think).
It took me about five days to crochet the scarf, from start to finish. However, I’m pretty sure that with the inclination and without distractions I could have made it four hours.
It feels really soft and I reckon it will be gorgeously warm in coming winter months.
I’m looking forward to making some nice chunky blankets in the future.
